    They set one unit to 69 at night and combined with the 77% RH in the garage @ 74 dew point I recommended a small portable dehum blowing the air over the units. I see no other way to stop it without conditioning the garage air some with the dehum.
    If they happen to have an electric water heater in this garage, a heat pump water heater can make a huge difference in RH and dewpoint....just a thought, but I've seen many going into garages lately and the cool dry air by-product can change the climate in there.

    Yes they certainly do make a difference. I just put one in my garage and I love how my garage is much drier and even cooler. I have been measuring the condensate and monitoring the %. Yea I'm a nerd and off work due to a injury!

    I already had a waste heat recovery unit on the existing heater and kept that one as a preheat tank piped in series to the new heat pump.

    At this house the heaters are in the attic. 3 50 gallon heaters! Customer just had all 3 changed out a month before the job.

    Oh well.....by the way...I grew up in Quincy and went to FSU and TCC. Started in A/C as an apprentice with a one man shop in Quincy and moved on. Nice to see "home folks" here!

    Doing just fine. June was a big month, but July will be a challenge with the first week being a rain-out. Who is your ortho doc? We have some top notch back Dr's in this town.

    I was taken to bay medical hospital I think they also call it sacred heart or something? DR Doug stringer did the surgery. He has a twin brother Merle who is also a back surgeon. I was paranoid because his first impression is definately not the best. But I think he did a great job.
